Harrison Burton on rookie season so far: ‘If I could give it a grade, I wouldn’t give it a good one’


Rookie seasons at the NASCAR Cup level can be extremely difficult, with drivers used to winning frequently at the lower levels struggling to finish inside the top-15 with the increased competition and equipment at the top level of the sport.

It’s been no different for Harrison Burton, who recorded four wins and 25 top-five finishes across his last two NASCAR Xfinity Series seasons. Thus far in his rookie Cup campaign, the Virginia native has one top-five and two top-10s in the No. 21 Wood Brothers Ford.
